DEARBORN - As the March of Dimes embarks on their 75th anniversary, the UAW and Ford Motor Company are extremely proud to help support their signature fundraising event, March for Babies, for the ninth-consecutive year. Over the past nine years, the UAW/Ford team has raised over $2 million for the March of Dimes.
Why March of Dimes? More than 4 million babies were born in the United States last year and the March of Dimes helped each and every one through 75 years of research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs. When you walk in March for Babies, you are giving hope to the babies that are born too soon each year. The money you raise supports program in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies.
Raising money and walking together creates a sense of camaraderie that carries over into the workplace. The 2013 campaign kicked off the week of Feb. 18, with the walk event taking place on Saturday, April 27 at Hines Park. UAW/Ford is the Presenting Sponsor of the Hines Park event. Please consider participating by:
• Walking at an event near you. Register at www.marchforbabies.org/uawford
(select UAW / Ford and choose your state and team name).
• Volunteering to help support the campaign in your building. The March of Dimes is working with volunteers in each building to create committees to support the campaign. If you’re interested in being a part of the committee in your building, please contact Melissa Greer at firstname.lastname@example.org
• Supporting a fundraiser in your building or donating to a co-worker that is walking.
Thank you for all you do to ensure that one day all babies will be born healthy!
